They said a final decision would be taken by a meeting of EU ambassadors in Brussels on Tuesday, and the aim would be to avoid overshadowing a summit of EU leaders set for Jan. 30.
“It looks likely it will be brought forward to the 23rd,” one of the diplomats said. (Reporting by David Brunnstrom, Julien Toyer and Justyna Pawlak; Editing by Matthew Jones)
